@rstoddart, similar thought: This seems to be like the paradox "what happens when an irresistible force meets an unmovable object". In this case we have the loudest object in the office meeting another object which by definition is even louder. It will probably result in the annihilation of the universe.
They are representing the two kinds of loud, one is of personality, and one of volume.
I wonder if there is a positive feedback loop here with the chances of going into critical mass.
Creating a black hole and !$%*!$% the perpetrators into it.
